We are now looking for a new Business Design Director to work on the next generation of digital experiences.

We create value and positive impact through the design of meaningful digital product- and service experiences. We're a digital acceleration partner.

About the role

As a Business Design Director you play a central part as an advisor to our clients. You are responsible for overseeing multiple projects for our clients to ensure that they are in line with customer behaviour as well as business objectives and agreements.

You are primarily working in a cross functional team consisting of you, a Design Director and a Technical Director. But very often the team expands based on client need to other disciplines such as Content- and UX-Designers as well as System Architects and Software Engineers.

You will also be prospecting new businesses, using your wide network of contacts to qualify opportunities and build new relationships into clients.

We believe that you are flexible, can apply strategic, operational and organisational lenses to help create new and viable businesses for our clients. You are highly analytical—and adept with quantitative data and financial models. You are creative — i.e. capable of seeing potential directions and sensing opportunities. And that you are experimental —am eager to put ideas into action, solidify thinking through prototyping, and test hypotheses in reality.

You should also move with ease between the world of our clients’ concerns and capabilities, and their customers.
